24 bits 192kHz AB stereo recording made with using prototype of the Surface Microphone based on the shape of Achimedean' Spiral 2017.01.01, around 00:00 hour from balcony on 3rd floor in Częstochowa, Poland.
There are two version to download, both are uncompressed FLAC files: - pure recording with it's full dynamic (and natural lo level of lower sounds), - compressed and limited version which is louder but has less dynamic than the original
I made this record for purpose which was different than just testing futuristic technology prototype equipment (which is always interesting and fun to me). In some Polish Cities (like Częstochowa) local governments does not blocked using fireworks on New Year's Eve. Hundreds of animals are dying because of that, thousands are scarred by sounds far to loud for them and light far too bright. I made this record to ask animal protection agencies for making campaign which will change local law and stop hurting our little brothers by Fireworks.
Listening to this "battle" can be hypnotizing. You may find it interesting how microscopic Spiral microphones can be. It can be also a good source of samples but when you take on mind what it means for animals it change the meaning drastically. I hope that this record will change situation of defenceless creatures for better.
